Today is going to be ninety something degrees. It’s only 9am and my children are already asking for popsicles. It’s really fun eating them but it’s just as much fun to make them. So, we broke out the popsicle molds. We tried a new recipe using fresh strawberries I just picked up at the market. I used some coconut water – which is naturally so good for you. It’s super hydrating (in this heat!) and it’s full of electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorous. Not that you needed an excuse to try these popsicles! Side note: Try replacing sugary sports drinks with coconut water – it’s fantastic.
1 1/2 cups roughly chopped organic strawberries
3 tblsp coconut water
3 tblsp coconut milk (I prefer Whole Foods organic “365 brand”)
3 tblsp agave nectar
- Coarsely chop strawberries and put in the blender with coconut milk, coconut water and agave nectar. Pulse for only about 10 seconds – so it’s still quite chunky.
- Evenly divide fruit mixture between popsicle molds. Let freeze (upright) for about 4 hours. To loosen them, simply run the mold under a bit of warm water.
